Learn to develop for Android and transform your career outlook! This Nanodegree will provide a guided, efficient path for an intermediate developer with little or no experience on mobile platforms to emerge as an Android Developer.
By the end of the Nanodegree, you’ll have a diverse portfolio of projects to show employers, and will even publish your own app on the Google Play Store as part of the Capstone project.
This is an Intermediate Nanodegree: Entering students are expected to have prior experience building applications (web or mobile) in Java or another object-oriented programming language.
A Nanodegree is a new type of curriculum and credential, designed to prepare you for a career in technology.
It is built with industry so you can master skills that employers seek in an Android Developers.
It is project-based: after taking online courses, you’ll complete several projects, supported by our community of Coaches and students, to practice and show off your skills.
It’s flexible: study on your own time and take only the courses you need to ace projects!
It’s career-focused: you’ll improve your resume and online presence (LinkedIn, GitHub, project portfolio), prepare for interviews and attend workshops.
This is not a “Zero to Hero” program. Entering students are expected to have prior experience building applications (web or mobile) in Java or another object-oriented programming language.
You should have at least 1-2 years of experience in Java or another object-oriented programming language prior to enrolling.
If you have no prior programming experience, we recommend you take our Android Development for Beginners course, also built with Google.
